Wow, it's coming up really nice, looking forward for the final result :D. Are you going for gum wall tyres or all black?


Thansk for the feedback.

I'm going with black & lime Rubino Pro's by Italian company Vittoria. :lol: I also have some slightly used grey Michelin Pro 2's I've been hoarding for a few years.

I think the green tyres will be great, since the decals are of the same colour. Looking forward for the finishing result :D

Indeed the tyres will look good but they are devoid from grip !!!! I used them on my winter steed(mine were cheapo version) maybe different compound would be good 8)

That's a very classy choice of colours. Gunmetal can look a bit staid on a bike, but the green decals really set it off. Will wait to see the tyres on the bike before making my mind up about them though...!

Stem is a 3TTT Status also in gunmetal grey - got this from Planet-X cycles for a bargain 9.99 pounds. The ugly Stronglight headset has to go.


I bought one of those stems myself for the Raleigh RSP 853 project - good value but the black plastic cap covering the main allen bolt is a fiddly proposition to remove & replace.
I'm normally a big fan of Stronglight kit, and I'm sure the bearings are good quality, but you're right - the headset your frame came with is certainly no "looker"!
